Hydro Aluminium Poles

Clean & Green, Durable, Lightweight, Elegant and Cost-Effective Aluminium Poles

Founded in 1905, Hydro is a fully vertically integrated aluminium company with 35,000 employees in 40 countries on all continents, combining local expertise, worldwide reach and unmatched capabilities in Research & Development.

Hydro operates across the entire aluminium supply chain. The company is known for its focus on efficient manufacturing processes relying on clean energy – something that sets Hydro apart from most other suppliers of lighting poles. Hydro’s aluminium poles are made of at minimum 95% recycled aluminium. As a result, the poles are cost-effective, and the manufacturing process requires only about 5% of the energy that would be needed if manufactured from primary aluminium. The energy that is used is 100% from renewable sources, and at the end of their lifetime, Hydro Aluminium poles are 100% recyclable.

MHL has been supplying Hydro in New Zealand since 2012, with over 700 poles installed to date.
